With the latest update we have moved reputation from being site-specific to being a network wide value for your accounts. ie your rep on CodeProject will follow you to RootAdmin once we've completed the upgrades on RootAdmin, and again onto any other site we add to our network.

In doing this, a bug we thought squashed has appeared again.

Your rep is stored in 3 places: Raw data (accurate), summary data per rep type (should be accurate), and a final total value that's displayed at the top right of the page (should also be accurate, but it wasn't). This value (the final total) is updated separately, but at the same time as your rep points, and unfortunately, despite the efforts of the team to ensure it was in-sync, it became out of sync with the raw rep data we had stored.

The main point: The raw data is accurate. The rep point total you saw at the right of your name at the top of each was not accurate. It was, in some cases, high. The resync has set your rep points to what they actually should be. No points have been "lost".

So, when moving rep data we did a full resync and this has resulted in that value being lower than it was before the sync. As far as I can tell, and I do need to check this, the values per-rep-type (eg your author rep, or authority rep) were always accurate, and it's these values that determine your abilities and voting weight on the site. After checking it looks like it was the summary of the individual rep types that was inaccurate, so some members have lost a member level in some rep types. However, the raw data from which the calculations are based is accurate and so the new values are the true values. I know this doesn't help make anyone feel any better, though.

I'm going to throw the kitchen sink at this and find out what was done, what's happening, and how to stop it happening again, and I apologise for not having this fixed previously.

In a related issue the data migration initially missed on a bunch of rep points between Nov 16 and 22. These were migrated back over and your reputation values updated with the missing values.
